YouTube Shuts Down Palestinian Media Watch

How can you show hate without being accused of spreading hate?

YouTube has closed down PMW’s main video account – PALWATCH – for “violating YouTube terms of use”, by supposedly propagating hate speech. PMW does not promote hate speech, but exposes the hate speech of the Palestinian Authority and Hamas.

YouTube stated that the account was henceforth terminated “due to repeated or severe violations of our Terms of Use” and they specified the following PMW videos from Palestinian sources, promoting the killing of Jews.


The whole reason they put the videos online is to tell the world of the incitement and hatred being spewed daily from the TV stations of the PA and Hamas.

Here are some of the offending videos – of course they are gone now.
